What Brad Montgomery Talks About:
Laugh-O-Nomics: Connecting Happiness At Work To Bottom Line Success
Happiness isn’t some fuzzy emotion. It’s an attitude. It’s a set of skills and techniques. They can be learned, they are easier to incorporate than most people think, and best of all we can see measurable, positive results very quickly. And there is no better way to get your people on the happiness track than with this signature presentation.
This is not a garden-variety motivational speech. In fact, calling Laugh-O-Nomics a motivational speech is a misnomer. Laugh-O-Nomics is a powerful course in fundamental skill-building that maximizes your company’s most important asset: your employees. And it’s taught by a professional who understands intimately the connection between happiness and work.
Highly interactive, hilarious and engaging, this keynote teaches that happiness is up to us. Furthermore, the payoff for happiness has a huge impact on our bottom line results.
The How’s And Wise of Happiness at Work
Happiness and what would it mean to your organization if your team was able to increase your productivity by 25%?
Like you, Brad Montgomery believes that because we spend so much time at work we should find ways to maximize our happiness on the job. Common sense tells us that happiness is valuable.
In this keynote, Brad goes beyond common sense to explain that there is some really cool — and fairly new — science about just how valuable happiness at work is. Not only does happiness just plain feel good, it has a direct business payoff. Happy people outperform their unhappy peers in pretty much every measurable business metric.
Motivation: Embrace Your Awesomeness
It’s simple. Brad believes that everybody needs to be told that they are awesome. They can make a difference. They can take responsibility. They can take ownership. And they should do all of these things and more.
Brad believes that we generally underestimate our influence. So in this motivational keynote he reminds people how much power and influence they have, and it encourages them to motivate and build up those around them. He inspires them to get up and take action. To make a difference. To see that they have a purpose in life.
Supported with humor, stories, the craziest use of PowerPoint you've ever seen, music and even confetti Brad takes on motivating your team to be their best to a new (and very funny) level.
Don’t Just Survive Change. Thrive with Change!
What would it mean to your organization if your people stopped fighting Change and instead Craved it? Yeah. We know. It would be huge.
Brad understands that the real problems behind change are fear and uncertainty. Your people don’t like change because “Doing things the way we used to do them” is more comfortable than learning the new systems, processes and thought-patterns necessary for success and long-term sustainability.
Brad believes that when we stay stagnant we lower our long-term happiness. Yup, it’s comfortable continue the same way, but it’s not great for our long-term personal wellness-of-being. It doesn’t make us happy; lack of change makes us unhappy.
Change is tough. Change is challenging. And change requires effort. But in the end, it’s this very effort that helps improve our own attitudes. Change actually makes us better.
